NEW YEAR’S BLESSINGS FROM RABBI CHAIM

As we stand before G-d this Rosh Hashana, let’s pray and beseech our Creator to bestow upon His world a super dose of forgiveness, a touch of non-tough love, a good amount of wisdom to focus on the things that actually matter, a gift of moderation so we can stop bickering about anything and everything that doesn’t speak/look/think like us, and a bit more revelation so that His creations can grow in their relationship with Him. We will, of course, do our part: we resolve to be more united even with those with whom we disagree wholeheartedly, we hope to be more conscious of the pristine environment which we’ve been gifted, we are sure to be more devoted to our people, our land and our Torah, and most importantly, we commit to cut the judgmentalism out of our system. G-d is the True Judge, not us.

I bless each and every one of you, my beloved readers, my devoted congregants and my amazing Montanan sisters and brothers: may this year be the one that you’ve been waiting for. May you merit to see G-d in action, not only in mystery; may you merit tangible sweetness materialistically, physically and spiritually. May you know only good health with doctors being used for preventative measures only, may your children, grandchildren and all those whose future you’re rooting for personally, give you Jewish Nachas, and may we all experience redemption, an epic liberation from the exilic limitations, with freedom to worship G-d as He originally intended with the coming of our Mashiach, now!

A Gut Gebenched Yur!

Your Bozeman brother,

Rabbi Chaim Bruk

FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOU … BY RABBI CHAIM BRUK

Dear Friend,
Chavie, Chaya, Zeesy & Menny join me in wishing you and your family K’siva V’Chasima Tova L’Shana Tova Umetuka. May you and yours be Inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life for a sweet New Year with revealed blessings of health, wealth, happiness and Nachas.
May the conclusion of this year, arguably the most challenging for our people in a generation, bring to a final close the hate, violence and war that we have had to endure, and bring in its place justice, safety, security and most importantly, peace and harmony, to our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land, in Montana and the world at large.
May this year bring about a realization of Hashem’s gifts in our personal life and the ability to transform our challenging moments into moments of learning and growth. May we all utilize G-d’s direct channels of Torah and Mitzvot and His hidden channels in every breath of life to live a meaningful and fulfilling life.
May our dreams become reality, may our hopes for the future become the experience of the present, and may we all succeed in truly living up to the Infinite potential that Hashem has placed within our minds and hearts, bodies and souls.
Most importantly, may this New Year finally bring about an end to this vicious exile and usher in the era we’ve all been waiting for, for way too long, the coming of our righteous Mashiach – Amen.
With best wishes, and deep gratitude for your love and friendship,
Rabbi Chaim Bruk
